ing, Dances. . . , Patrelle, Joyce Thisler Dance Company, Laura Dean Dancers and 
Musicians and Michael Mao Dance. In 1995, after creating numerous roles in a broad 
range of styles, he choreographed his first ballet, To The Eternity. Since then, he has 
received several commissions and growing recognition for his pristine, classically 
oriented works. 

MOSES PENDLETON received his BA in EngUsh literature from Dartmouth College 
in 1971 and co-founded Pilobolus Dance Theater in the same year In the 1970s 
Pilobolus won world-wide acclaim for its innovative blend of acrobatics and imagina- 
tion, including the Berhn Critics Prize in 1975. Pierre Cardin presented the group on 
Broadway in 1977. In 1979, he choreographed and performed in the Paris Opera's 
Integrale Eric Satie. Mr Pendleton began to work outside Pilobolus in 1980 when he 
choreographed the closing ceremonies for the Winter Olympics at Lake Placid. He also 
performed his solo Momix at the Games, which became the name of the company he 
founded the following year. In addition to his work with MomLx, Pendleton h;us been 
active as choreographer and performer for numerous other companies including the 
Jofl^rey Ballet, Ballet de Nancy and Lina Wertmuller's production of Carmen with the 
Munich State Opera in 1993.
